Maura Sharkey-Pryma has seen great results with the virtual LETS program she created with the MacEwan University, School of Continuing Education EAL Department and The Conservatory of Music she developed in 2020. SMEA is honored to sponsor the expansion this program into Saskatchewan in conjunction with the University of Saskatchewan Language Centre.
Lead by Maura Sharkey-Pryma, this online course (held via Zoom) is open to University of Saskatchewan Language Centre students as well as any Saskatchewan community member, with a focus on learning English as an additional language (EAL). Work on your English language skills and pronunciation, meet new people and learn to sing. Join us for fun weekly rehearsals where you will sing simple popular songs together in English. Participants do not need to have any experience, all are welcome!
Fall Semester: September 22 - December 1, 2022
Each Thursday at 2-3:30 pm CST via ZOOM
Meet the Instructor
Maura Sharkey-Pryma BMus; MMus | Vocal Instructor & Clinician
"My purpose is to help each student build a solid musical foundation that will provide him or her a lifetime of enjoyment. I am most interested in uncovering and inspiring each singers' potential, and to be a guide: helping develop sustainable, functional skills in a healthy, efficient manner to meet the demands of the music. I believe in helping singers discover their voice in ANY genre in an authentic, emotionally honest expression, both physically and vocally."
Maura also has an extensive playlist of Learn English Through Singing on YouTube from her previous courses taught through MacEwan University. Below is one video from the Learn to Sing English YouTube Playlist - make sure to check out the whole playlist here!
